****Hershey Handbell Ensemble Christmas
A holiday event that should not be missed awaits you at the Sweet Arrow Lake Clubhouse.  Join us on Saturday, December 9 at 3:00pm for “Christmas at the Clubhouse” featuring the Hershey Handbell Ensemble.  This auditioned ensemble, directed by Dr. Shawn Gingrich, was formed in 2004 and is based in south central Pennsylvania.  Formed to fulfill the need for a community based group that is able to play advanced handbell arrangements, this sixteen member ensemble performs seasonally in April and December on seven octaves of Malmark Handbells, Handchimes, and assorted other instruments including cello, oboe, flute, saxophone, and percussion.  The ensemble seeks to advance an interest in handbell ringing through education and performance of this beautiful musical art.  If you would like more information about the ensemble, please visit their website or Facebook page.  Light refreshments will be served after the program.  An admission donation of $5.00 will be asked at the door (cash, no cards).  Due to limited space, reservations are strongly suggested to guarantee seating.  To make reservations or for info call 570-345-8952 (leave a message).
